Still a few of these to snap up. From an edition of 25. It's a hand pulled print, illustrated and printed by my good self. Still one of my personal favourites

About

How it all began…

Hand Drawn Creative was originally a venture born of necessity. In 2008, I'd lost my job as Graphic Designer and couldn't find design work anywhere in Northern Ireland (I was even declined a job interview for designing labels for a cheese company!) My wife & I were expecting our firstborn and I was on the cusp of losing my meagre unemployment benefit. To put it bluntly, we were screwed.

Then I opened an Etsy account, printed a few of my illustrations and contacted a few relevant bloggers. Suddenly I watched in amazement as the sales started to come in. It was a real boost in confidence, and was the kick in the butt I needed to get up and start my own company.

I haven't looked back – 2 weeks after opening my Etsy Store, I got a call from TIME Inc. with offers of Illustration work and things have just kept rolling from there. Four years in and Hand Drawn Creative is a small, soulful creative company.

I receive regular messages of praise and support from my customers and clients and I'll be doing this for many years to come. Sure, I'm no millionaire, but I get to work at home and watch my young family grow and do what I love for a living. It's a good way to work and a great way to live!
